3 characters, 3 stories, 1 city. A hypothetical tale of our own Barcelona that lies somewhere between documentary and fiction.

“Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, has always been a symbol of freedom and progress. A city of social harmony, created from plurality and diversity, that has projected its own capacity for initiative, its vocation of modernity and its supportive commitment to building a world in peace, based on respect and tolerance. Barcelona, a cradle of cultures, has been and wants to be an example in the defence of the rights of peoples and individuals.” (Extract from the Barcelona Municipal Charter).

But in Barcelona we also have Les Corts police station; the 4F incident; the murder of Juan Andrés Benítez; the deaths in the CIE (immigration detention centre) and social and class contrasts. If you attend a demonstration in Barcelona, you could come back without an eye. As well as “guiris” (foreigners) we have “invisibles”, protesters who become victims of reprisals, and people living in utter poverty.

And there are also parties, like this one tonight. Are you coming?

The La Pública company emerged in 2015 as a space for theatrical creation and research, as a result of the shared need to create performative events that question the reality in which we live. The company has been selected for an artistic residency at Lluïsos Teatre in Barcelona between December 2015 and July 2016. Its piece Barcelona (against the wall) has also been chosen for the “IT Emergentes” cycle organised by the Institut de Teatre, Festival GREC 2016, Temporada Alta and Fira Tàrrega.

We are Lali Álvarez , Sonia Espinosa, Clara Garcés, Pau Matas, David Teixidó, Núria Solina, Neus Oriol and Anna Matas.
